Martial Eagle attack - Photo series

23 October 2009 - Mikumi National Park, Tanzania
Now the photo story of the Martial Eagle doing a failed attack on the young Impala. Click on a photo for a larger version.

Flying in.

Ready to get the Impala. The Impala seems to be unaware of what is coming, but jumps away with a squeek when the Eagle is coming close.

The Eagle just misses the Impala, who runs off in the dry grass. The Eagle lands while the young Impala ran out of sight.

The Eagle just looks around and thinks (add your own anthropomorphic thoughts here, since I have no clue what's going on in or with the Eagle).

The Martial Eagle takes off.

The Eagle finds a tree as a look out and resting point for a future attempt.
